Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin will not be part of Australia's squad for the final Ashes Test at The Oval after he returned home for family reasons.

Haddin, 37, played in the first Test but missed the second for personal reasons and was replaced by Peter Nevill, who has since kept his place.

Cricket Australia has yet to announce who will replace Haddin in the squad.

Matthew Wade has been named as Haddin's successor in Australia's squad for the one-day and Twenty20 games in England.

Wade, 27, who has been playing on Australia A's tour of India, could also come into the Test squad as a replacement for Haddin, who retired from one-day cricket after Australia's World Cup triumph in March and was not expected to be recalled for the final Ashes Test starting on 20 August.

England regained the urn by taking an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series with victory at Trent Bridge last week.

Australia have also named all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, spinner Ashton Agar and batsman Joe Burns in their ODI squad, who face Ireland in Belfast on 27 August before the five-game series and single Twenty20 match against England.

All three will be making their debut if they play in the series.

Steve Smith will lead the one-day side, which will be without bowlers Mitchell Johnson and Josh Hazlewood, who have been rested.

The squad also features the return of bowler James Pattinson, who joined Australia A in India after recovering from a string of injuries, but there is no place for all-rounder James Faulkner, who was not considered as he serves a team suspension for being convicted of drink driving in England last month.

Australia one-day squad: Steve Smith (capt), Ashton Agar, George Bailey, Joe Burns, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Patrick Cummins, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, Shane Watson, David Warner, Cameron Boyce (T20 only)
